KDE "The KDevelop team is proud and happy to announce that KDevelop 4.0 is finally available as stable release. KDevelop comes with lots of innovative features, even though many features from the 3.5 series were dropped due to a nearly complete rewrite. In particular the developers have focused on building an excellent C++ IDE instead of trying to integrate lots of languages and features halfheartedly. Of course KDevelop 4 also builds an excellent basis for other languages, the best proof for that is the PHP plugin that is released alongside KDevelop 4.0. KDevelop 4.0 has an excellent C++ code understanding engine, which allows the IDE to understand your code better than you do, and which is then used to assist you by releasing you from tiresome tasks."

-Semantic highlightning
-Semantic autocompletion
-Documentation integrated in autocompletion (in a better way)
-It generate graphics and UML on the fly

Those features are quite unique, MSVC++ and Eclipse look outdated when you code in KDevelop. As for QtCreator, it is a good little IDE, but not a fully featured one. I most admit that I still code in Kate because of the stability, even if QtCreator is getting there.
